    Default DV Cam as DAT Drive?

    Just a thought, but the recent loss of my video drive has made me take stock of my (inadequate) backup routines.

    Has any one ever used a DV Cam as a dat drive? If so how did you do it?

    Thanks in advance.
    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc

    Not heard of software that can do that - but I would recommend seom kind of external storage. Perhaps something like these: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...rd_Drives.html

    Default hmm

    I remember seeing something about using a DV or D8 cam as a tape drive for storing data in an issue of Videomaker magazine. I'll see if I can find it.
